Introducing: Lauren Messina Interior Design!

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." ~William Shakespeare

Oh... but a name can mean so very much (and look how it turned out for Romeo and Juliet...Star-crossed lovers who could never be together all because of a name!) Names are important and while they don't define who we are, they can tell a beautiful story if we let them. 

Lauren M. Creative, the name I gave my business many years ago, has served me well. It has been a business that has served many clients and at one time brides well too! However, just as change, and learn through experiences, my business has too. I have had the pleasure of designing some amazing homes recently and it has opened up a world of opportunity for me to be able to build my brand. This has made me take a step back and a hard look at my business name and I have come to realize that I want my name, Lauren Messina, to be a part of this brand. 

Anyone who has their full name in their business can probably agree when I say that this puts a little more pressure on a business owner when it's your name on everything you do. However, I am up for the challenge and now is the time to take that leap and continue moving forward. 

So it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you my new name, Lauren Messina Interior Design. 

I am absolutely thrilled at where this is going to lead my interior design business and I can't wait to share with you some exciting collaborations, and plans in the works! 

LMID is growing, and with that, you will not only see a new look, but a lot more social media interaction, blog posts and a new emphasis on entertaining and travel (as well as a main focus on design of course). 

I want to thank all of my friends, family and clients who support me every day. I am so grateful! I love the projects that I am designing right now and my clients are amazing! They are the reason I want to continue to grow and expand! Feel free to peruse my updated website and don't forget to subscribe to my blog posts where you will be the first to hear of all that is going on with Lauren Messina Interior Design! 







What's New at Lauren M. Creative!

I can't believe we are already plowing through 2016 and into Spring! Where has the time gone!? There are so many wonderful things happening at Lauren M. Creative and I can't wait to share with you some big projects that are in the works! 

Unfortunately, my blog has taken a back seat during this busy time of year, however, I am blocking off some much-needed time so that I can give you guys some great blog posts in the coming months! 

Until, then, I thought you may want some sneak peaks of a few things happening in the world of LMC...


CSOL Designer Showhouse

Every year, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League puts on a wonderful month-long Designer Showhouse. This year, the home is nestled right across the street from Wentworth Mansion and I must say, this is one of the best houses we have had in a long time!

I took on the Master Bathroom as my room this year, and while it was a challenge, I think it turned out great! 

More details to come in a future blog...but here is a sneak peak of the finished space. If you want to go see it in person, the house is open through April 17th.  You can find out more information at

Charleston Home + Design Magazine

The new Spring issue of Charleston Home + Design Magazine was just released this week and I am thrilled to have a feature in there! Be sure to pick up one today! 




Lowcountry Live

If you live in the Charleston Area, you may already know, but I have been on the fabulous morning show Lowcountry Live! Over the past few visits, I have shared everything from Holiday Decor, to brightening up your home for Spring. 


I will be sure to let you guys know the next time I am on air as I have some fun segments planned for the Summer. 


New Product Line

I can't give out too much information yet, but I have been a busy bee with designs for a new product line I am doing for a company very near and dear to me. I can't wait to share! 



I am officially on Snapchat which means I have the opportunity every day to feel old. I'm slowly getting the hang of it and meeting some great people in the design industry along the way!  If you are brave enough to give it a try, be sure to follow me for fun snippets of my day, design tips, and probably way too many pictures of my dogs Miss Sophia and Lady Bella. 








I want to thank all of my amazing clients, vendors, family and friends for cheering LMC on every step of the way. The more we grow, the more I honestly know that we are nothing without all of you!
